Castello: Trademark Zulu with Silver Bamboo Ring (148.150) Tobacco Pipe
Product Number: 002-386-5031
Founded in Cantu, Italy, Castello have been producing exquisite pipes since 1947. This Zulu is a fine example of the Italian marque's formidable quality and is part of a limited release of pipes fitted with silver bands intricately carved to resemble stalks of bamboo wrapping around the shank. Decidedly neoclassic in style, the exaggerated bowl and jutting heel are well in keeping with that school's aesthetic. The abbreviated round shank is fitted with a bent acrylic stem, adorned with the aforementioned band. Dressed in a rich ruby stain, the stummel boasts fine swirling grain all around the bowl.-Gabriel Bass
